Hello Friends, our dear Lou is always very kind to help the problems of members of the forum, I completely agree with my friend Lou, the radiator Paso is right, but there are radiators of the Ducati Monster, which are very similar .

Now I'm going to sleep because tomorrow morning I will go to an Italian league game speeds up, I will be away for the weekend.

I was told not to do more road races, but this is a very famous race in a very beautiful, so I could not resist.

I'll show you a photo I have taken last year.

Ciao Dall'Italia e GASSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Carlo Gasssss!!!! Leoncini is 1st again!

It was worth the trip Carlo. (and the wrath of your wife?)

Hello Graeme, how did you find was the timing of the special stages of the Italian championship of the mountain?

I never have been able to find the site of the timekeepers!

Then I'll tell you my race:

Three practice in race trim on Saturday morning.

On Sunday morning, I timed the official test, to give the starting order.

I start as always with great caution, so do not mind having the best time of the test, the important thing is to understand the references to pull the brakes.

Normal childbirth, but I go to a right turn just a little wider and hit a bale of straw covered with plastic veneer that I left the platform, however I managed to get to the finish with his left hand by changing the rocker lever of the selector return to my right, put the transmission into third party is in tenth position.

I managed to fix the bike, since my truck was as usual, parked on arrival of the race.

I replaced the platform, I straightened the bracket with a hammer, and then I was able to go to the first test.
I had a bad start because the bike stood up front, and I lost time, and I came to two tenths off first.
This happens with the dry clutch, there are times that the friction discs are very early, and do not give the possibility to modulate the departure.

No problem.

I arrived on arrival take action, I unmount the clutch plates to dry (carbon aluminum) and on every disc I put a small amount of fat, so make a start modulated.

Start of the second test, the bike has rocketed away in the first, second and third gear, with the front wheel 5 centimeters off the ground for a distance of 80 meters!!

First place with a time of two seconds better than the first test
1:57:40.
I also did the best time of all the vintage bikes.

The runner was competing with a 350 yamaha grand prix, he made me claim and made me remove my bike to control the displacement must be less than 500cc.
And in fact, was 498cc.
I am testing techniques result in regular, while those who claim he made me the coolant and therefore was disqualified, because we just put water in the radiator cooling.
This is my story, I hope you have understood, and above all I hope not to have bored.
GASSSS!! CIAO GRAEME!!!!CIAO AMICI!!!!

Thanks Lou.
Noted and am working on it.
The best I can get is 25 x 4 for the main frt & rr fairings & 20 x 3 for the front upper half.
Just gathering some Dsuz fasteners.
Large pan head slotted screws for the seat base, tank & very front of fairing half. The one that screws into the instrument bracket.

Cheers,
Steve

Thanks Graeme!
Yes, you are correct. More so when I don't have ALL the parts!

So, to this end I ask for everybody's input in dimensioning the fairing brackets as per the attached PDF. If you could mark it up with dimensions and re-scan it, that would be superb!
Please?

I understand each bike is different, but it gives me a starting point. As Graeme pointed out to me, there is a method to positioning the fairing, but I require a helping hand.

Thanks,
Steve

I can measure the ones I made, but they are what fitted and not copied from any original TT. But I don't think that is what you need, is it?
